A Look Back on the Kitchen

I've been organizing my house photos and came across my kitchen remodel from a few years ago and thought I'd post them. This was my first time I ever did a complete gut of a room and am really proud of how it turned out. It's a small space but it is quite efficient, the perfect work triangle and even though its small its easy for Drew and I to work in there at the same time.I saved money by…

Vintage Owl A Pleasant Surprise

As you all know I have a few birds in my house and for the last few years I've been on the owl bandwagon. So it was pretty cool when I was at my mom's house last week and she told me she had something for me from my grandma. My grandmother died over 10 years ago so I had no idea what it could be.

Just because these pictures won't make it to the pages on any design magazines doesn't mean I'm not equally as proud of our latest accomplishment. Cleaning the garage!! This project has taken 4 years to complete and this garage has served us well. It has held alot of my belongings when I first moved in here with Drew, then it held old dishwashers and refrigerators and stoves and the countless excess junk from all our home remodeling projects.This garage project…
